'LOVE DIED YOUNG'


They met at the local library
One cold wintry day
They had nice conversation
And later met again at
A local party

He had hair of black
Blue eyes and a lovely smile
He was so handsome in her eyes

Her hair was golden like wheat
Her eyes were emerald green
Her beauty was rare
He adored her

They dated for 2 years
Then one day he fell to his
Knees all pride pushed aside
And he asked her to become his wife

She gratefully accepted his proposal
With God as the witness that day

Three years have passed
Two children came to them
A blessing from God
A boy and a girl-twins they were

Then three years later
The wife falls to the floor
She weakly said: “I am ok now” as
A hand was extended to help her to her feet

After the doctor’s exam
She was told she had a short
Time to live for she could not be healed

Love so young how could this be?
Her husband and two small children struggled
Wondering how could God let such a terrible thing
Happen to such a good family

Love died so young the husband
And children found strength to carry on
The mother lives on through them all
But how they long to find out in the end
Why love had to die so young?
